  1. Mark & Beverly Roberts, Grapevine, TX says

    Dad (William Harlan) was always close to Galen due to there closeness in age. Galen was a polite quite guy that reminded me much of the personality of his mother. It is always sad to see a loved one depart. But death is part of life and comes for us all.

  2. Doris Penter, Trumann says

    So sorry to hear about Mr Roberts passing. Now him and Dixie will be together. I loved waiting on him at the bank. Saw him about 6 weeks ago and told him how beautiful his Azaleas were and he commented they just don’t last long. He can plant some for Jesus. Prayers for the family.
